This Fox has a sweet tooth: Have you visited Little Red Fox’s sweet cousin yet?
These are a few of our favorite things: Bread Furst (4434 Connecticut) makes frequent appearances on “best of” lists that abound online. One of the latest? Eater DC’s “Go-To Bakeries For Fresh Loaves of Bread.”
This “go-to bakery” is now easier to navigate after a speedy renovation at the end of February.
Bread Furst took a few days last week to redo the layout and traffic flow inside, and even add a little more seating. pic.twitter.com/ZeVi5K9fCZ

Diner no more: A French brasserie will take the place of the American City Diner (5532 Connecticut Avenue) after an extensive renovation that includes an addition in the back of the building, according to Washington Business Journal’s review of documents filed with the Office of Zoning.
A cultural epicenter: Many Chevy Chase businesses hail the Avalon Theatre as a neighborhood anchor that pulls customers from across the District. It is also a cultural epicenter for all ages. Programs include:
“We strive to be more than just a neighborhood theater,” the Avalon told Forest Hills Connection. “We are trying, especially through our film education program to reach out to other parts of the city, be as much of a city resource as a neighborhood resource.”
Avalon Theatre’s annual fundraiser supports its outreach efforts and gives cinephiles a fascinating look at film history. The 2019 event on Sunday, May 5th is “Backwards and in Heels,” on the hidden history of women in film. Get details and buy your tickets here.
